Qatar Airways now accepting UnionPay cards
"Our partnership with UnionPay International, one of the world’s most popular bank card issuers, provides our global customers with more flexible payment options when they choose to book with Qatar Airways," Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said.
UnionPay is an international bankcard network accepted in 160 countries and regions around the globe. UnionPay cards can be used to pay in a variety of currencies including the Australian Dollar, Chinese Yuan, Euro, Great British Pound, Japanese Yen and US Dollar.
The deal with UnionPay is the latest initiative Qatar Airways has taken to enhance convenience for passengers traveling to and from the more than 150 destinations the airline serves across the world.
"We are committed to finding ways to better serve our customers; from our recently launched Apple Pay feature to our new digital membership card for our valued Privilege Club members," Al Baker said. "We are tireless in our pursuit to provide the most secure and convenient options to travellers as we go places together."
